I believe we can only become a fully sustainable business if we embed responsible behaviour in everything we do.
Some of our key achievements in 2018 for me were:
- Investing our assets in new homes, new jobs and clean energy to improve the lives of our communities
- Embracing diversity by giving opportunities in our company to anyone who has the ambition and talents to succeed
- Creating inclusive growth for everyone in our communities, making sure we reach out to those who are financially or physically disadvantaged
- Engaging with the many companies we invest in to ensure they follow environmentally sustainable behaviours.
